Blog Tour: Assumption by Aurora Rose Reynolds

a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof

They say when you assume that you make an ass out of you and me. Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she is based on what little information he had. What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with. Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, and now he needs to prove her wrong in order to protect her and their future.

5 billion gazillion to infinity and beyond stars….

Ok let me start at the beginning.  My name is Natasha Gentile and I love Nico Mayson.  I know what you’re thinking Nico…oh you do things to me that’s not imaginative?  Ok so Lisa asks me if I would want to read Assumption.  I look and frown, “Is this a joke, am I being punked? Is Ashton Kutcher here? Do I want Assumption?  The answer to that question is can I have it now?  Sadly she told me I had to wait for the ARC…Ok I’ll admit, I pouted, I sighed, I stomped the floor..It’s not fair. 

People if you thought you loved bad ass alpha male Nico Mayson… Well does Mrs. Reynolds have an ace up her sleeve. She’s a magician I tell you. 

Ok let’s start at the beginning of this story. The beginning words suck you in.  You can’t help it; it’s the magic she has as a writer.  It’s voodoo!!!

I see you judging me.  I know your thinking.  She has to be a slut, she works at a strip club and she takes her clothes off for money.  Yes I work at a strip club and you may think I’m a whore for showing off my body.

Gasp!!  Hello Autumn Freeman.  Ex- beauty queen, she’s won crowns. 

“Beautiful!” I hate that fucking word.  Who gives a shit if someone is attractive on the outside if they are dying inside?  My whole like has been about what I look like.

Yes she’s a stripper, but she is so much more than just that.  She’s sassy, she’s stubborn, she’s always on guard watching, she’s smart, she’s loving (just don’t mention it to her), she’s strong oh and she is also studying to be a nurse.  You wouldn't have thought that, we judge her, because well that's society right?

So Autumn is in the wrong place at the wrong time and now her life is in danger, and she needs to get out of town.  Enter Mr. Kenton Mayson, enter swooning now,  and also the start of another love affair with a Mayson man. 

He’s tall,  much taller than my five, six and a half foot frame.  His hair is touching the edge of the black t-shirt he has on.  He needed a cut a while ago but judging by the dark scruff along his jaw I could tell he didn't care much about grooming.  His shoulders were broad tapering down to a lean waist, his thighs were thick incased in a pair of dark jeans that had sheading around the seems and his wallet was imprinted on the back pocket like he wore them often.  I looked at his ass as he leaned over.  I couldn't believe that I was checking a man out.

Sweetheart, not only would I be checking him out.  I would be counting the ways I would be able to take off his pants and have my way with him…Ok Ok , you all know that you reread that part three times, so don’t even try to judge…If you're a hot blooded female, you’re attracted to this perfect male species. 

Their first meeting is epic.  He’s not too thrilled to be taking in a house guest he knows nothing about.  But he’ll do it for a friend.  Oh, wait, he knows that she’s a stripper but that's all he knows, and now starts the judging of Kenton Mayson. 

He ran a hand through his hair and looked me over again, anger apparent on his face. “I don't want random men in my house so if you need to get off take care of yourself.”

Tears stung my nose again as I recalled the look of disgust on his face as he told me to get myself off.  I said a silent f*#k you and looked at my bags then the stairs shaking my head.

Oh Kenton, have you ever heard the saying “don’t assume things because it makes an ass out of you and me”? So Autumn does what she knows best, she goes into her shell and makes sure no one sees the real her.  And why shouldn't she, he thinks he knows her.  He has no idea who she is and what she’s made of, oh but you are so going to find out, and when you do get ready to grovel, cause that what I love most.  I mean who doesn't want a hot head alpha male groveling at their feet? 

So now she’s got herself settled and she’s working the night shift at the hospital, clocking hours in order to be a nurse.  Except instead of asking he again assumes, she’s stripping.  Oh Kenton you didn’t…Oh he did, and let me tell you how my heart shattered to a million pieces. Warning get Kleenex ready!!

“I would never take a stripper home to meet my mom so your point is mute.”  My throat starts to close as I walk closer.  The phone is tucked to his ear.  “Fuck off, she’s a stripper.”  He growls into the phone. A whimper I can’t control climbs up my throat before I can stop it.  His head turns my way our eyes lock and his gets wide. “Babe”, he says, then pulls the phone from his ear. “Not you fucker, I gotta go.”

He hangs up and looks at me. I want to run so badly but my feet feel like they are glued to the floor.” Babe”, he repeats, looking at me with his eyes wide.

“I’m a lot more than a stripper.” I raise my hand before flopping it down at my side.  When it looks like he’s going to say something “I’m a person with feelings.  I have my own hopes and dreams.  I don't know how you can judge someone so easily without knowing what they've been through.” His eyes go soft again but this time I don't let that stop me.  “Honestly it makes me sad that you’re so closed minded and I’m glad that I now see who you really are.”  Tears clog my throat forcing me to pause.  “Unlike you, I gave you the benefit of the doubt. The difference is you proved me right more than once,” I say softly leaving him standing.

This starts the beginning of a love affair that Autumn wants absolutely nothing to do with, but who is she kidding, you can’t fight a Mayson man. Once they’ve claimed you, that’s it.  You are done for.  Little does Kenton know that he’s messed with the wrong girl.  She doesn’t care that you’re sorry, she doesn't care that you admitted you were wrong, she doesn't care that you want her.  She isn’t going to cave in easily. 

Commence the games of driving Kenton crazy, or better yet let me count the ways to drive him crazy.  I swear she is my hero.  She does everything in her power to make him bend, she goes clubbing and sends crazy ass drunk texts. I snorted laughing at this. All to make him go crazy, to make him growl, she is going to make sure that he never ever assumes anything in the future unless he knows the facts. And he just may love learning  these lessons.  But while he’s chasing her, she is still not safe.  So what does Kenton do when threatened?  He turns into a bad ass motherf*cker.  I swear he is absolutely nuts, and I swear I will never ever double cross him.   

So once again Mrs. Reynolds, you have captivated me, you have made me laugh, you’ve pissed me off, you’ve made me cry, you’ve made me hold my breath, all while giving me butterflies in my stomach. I swear I have reread some of the sex scenes to make sure they were even possible. But above all, you’ve made me fall in love with yet another Mayson man.  You have made me make assumptions, just like Kenton, but you have also filled my heart with a beautiful love story that everyone should read. 

“You’re the glue that holds all of my broken pieces together”

How can not want to read this book?  Don’t make assumptions that you know how this love story plays out, because whatever you assume, this book will surprise you!
